Perfume was everywhere in the ancient world, from scented oils and lotions used to perfume the body (both living and dead) to incense burned in homes and temples. The earliest documentation of perfume use and production is over 4,000 years old. Egyptians created alluring scents out of natural materials (flowers, herbs, resins, and animal products) to enhance their world and connect to worlds beyond. Build your own perfume using ancient ingredients in this free, drop-in workshop and bring the past home with you. Complements the exhibition Beyond the Nile: Egypt and the Classical World.
